Kings Heatherdean or Hetherden was in the parish of Andover, Southampton, and in 1613, when Robert Noyes of Erchfounte (or Urchfont), Wilts., made his will, seems to have been in the possession of his eldest son, Robert Noyes of Hatherden, whose burial. as of 13 Jan., 1636–7, I found entered in the parish register of Andover.

proved 2 Feb., 1618. in which he mentions kinsman Peter Noyes of Andover. Our Peter Noyes of Sudbury, Mass., dying in the fall of 1657, left lands in Andover, England, called the Breaches, the moiety whereof was settled upon his eldest son Thomas, as joint purchaser, and the remaining moiety he bequeathed to his two sons Peter and Joseph. I found on the parish register of Andover the entry of baptism of a Peter, son of Thomas Noyce, 30 August, 1590 (?). This Peter, I am inclined to think, was our Sudbury man. What relation this last bore to the families of Noyes in Wilts., Southampton (i. e. Hampshire) and Berks., I will not yet venture to suggest. H. F. W.
